Get Connected

Before connecting -  anti-virus programs

To ensure network security, the latest Windows updates and up-to-date Anti-Virus software are required for Windows devices to connect to the campus network. When you connect to campus Wi-Fi, the campus network management system, connect.carroll.edu, will check your system and will not allow you to connect until you have installed updates and have a valid Anti-Virus software program installed.

We officially support the following AntiVirus programs, although others may work as well.
